PeopleSoft Upgrade: Introduction and Accessibility

This is the first message in a series of messages that are important updates regarding the accessibility of a major system upgrade here at the University. You will use this system to do many things like registering for courses, checking financial aid status, and more.

This upgrade will affect all students. Accessibility for people with disabilities using adaptive technology (i.e. screen readers, screen magnifiers, etc.) is an important part of the upgrade. If you are a person with a disability, these messages are extremely important. We invite you to stay up-to-date.

Another great resource for staying up-to-date is the University-wide Upgrade blog. Be sure to check it out! Please stay tuned - more information soon.

Upgrade:  Getting Access to the Accessible Format

Remeber that system upgrade that's coming? Remember that we're working on it to make it accessible?

If you use adaptive technologies such as a screen reader (JAWS, NVDA), a screen magnifier, or Dragon Naturally Speaking to navigate the web, you will interact with the system in a format that's being built for adaptive technology users.

If you use adaptive technologies, we need to know who you are!

If you think you will want to interact with the system in this accessible format, you must email Emily Norenberg and tell her you want the accessible format for the upgrade. Please do this no later than Wednesday, March 11.

If you have questions about whether or not you need the accessible version of the system, please call and we can talk (218-726-6101).

Also - FAQs for system accessibility are here - take a look.


Remember to make an appointment with your Disability Specialist at the beginning of each semester.
